POWERTRAIN

Depending on the model you choose, Dodge Charger offers three premium engines — the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 – which offers world-class levels of power and fuel efficiency+; the legendary 5.7L HEMI® V8 with Fuel Saver Technology, which gives you exceptional power and maximum efficiency; and the new 6.4L HEMI V8, standard on the Dodge Charger SRT8®. This HEMI engine delivers 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

Efficiency

Even with elevated power numbers, the 6.4L HEMI V8 achieves an estimated increase in highway mpg+ of 25% by using a new for 2012 active valve exhaust system that allows the standard Fuel Saver Technology (four-cylinder mode) to engage over a wider rpm range for improved efficiency.

  • FOUR-CYLINDER MODE FUEL SAVER TECHNOLOGY

    Fuel Saver Technology allows the 5.7L HEMI V8 and the 6.4L HEMI V8 to switch from eight cylinders to four in highway traffic or during cruising — delivering greater fuel efficiency+,+. It utilizes sensors to detect when full power isn't necessary and shuts off four of the eight cylinders. It's performance with a conscience.
